Here there is a small problem. We need to know, eventually, two 
different version numbers: the earliest version that shows the problem, 
and the latest version tested. In the past, the "reported" version was 
supposed to be the earliest ("oo.o 3.2.1"), and the user should add 
something like, "also fails under 3.4 Beta". We could do a better job of 
making this clear, or maybe we need another field, or both.
